, but it is his record that won him the person of the year award. i spoke to the international editor in new york. does obama's new america include gun control do you think? >> i think it does. what is interesting is in his first administration he presided over three mass shootings, and it is one issue he avoided. i think because the children were so young he was visibly moved. i think there has been a radical shift in policy, and what was basically a forgotten issue has moved to the forefront for the second term. i think it is a real change. >> not everyone will agree with your choice. what criteria do you use when you make your pick? >> the basic person is the person or persons who have most influenced world events over the previous year and stand the best chance of doing so over the year ahead, so there were a lot of viable candidates. there was a pakistani girl who was shot by the taliban, hamas mursi.nd more se -- a lot of people think the u.s. president is a boring choice, but we evaluated it on the merits, and we think the 2012 election is more significant than the 2008 election, which is

.b.r.," washington. >> susie: the threat of the fiscal cliff was a big topic at an investor conference in new york today hosted by johnson controls. this wisconsin-based industrial conglomerate is a leading provider of products to make buildings energy efficient, and it's also the world's largest maker of car batteries and automotive seats. c.e.o. stephen roell told me he's worried that uncertainty about the fiscal cliff could hurt consumer confidence, and his business. >> we don't do that. as the consumer, i products to costumers like the big three, that in turn sell to the auto industry. my biggest concern is how it will affect the psychology of the consumer. i've been surprised, susie, that people continue to buy automobiles. but my fear is that could change dramatically. >> susie: steve, to what extent are the ups and downs impacting your business day to day. >> i think people are holding back on making captain investments. i see that particularly in the building side. from my standpoint, i continue to invest around the world. i'll invest to make sure i'm buying the strategies we laid up for

eliot engel of new york, who will become that committee's ranking member in the next term. congressman royce, let me start with you. what's the key thing we learned from this report? where do you see the main failure? >> well, i think the main failure when you read the report is in management at senior levels because when you had on the ground was not only an ambassador but other personnel warning that al qaeda camps were growing, explaining that they felt that they were at risk personally, asking for support-- which was not forth come ago and coming to the conclusion that washington was not concerned about their security needs. so all of that comes out in the memos. and i think what has to be addressed is why not only was the preparation not there, but somebody forgot to circle the calendar on 9/11. there was no attempt or no effective way, i guess, desploid should this happen that we could come in with a quick-reaction team and assist them if they come under attack. eight-hour firefight, no assistance through that period. >> eliot engel, do you read it any differently?

"newshour" economics correspondent paul solman has been exploring that question. part of
